UNIAN’s diplomatic source says the move is connected with the uncertainty over the possible consequences of the referendum in the Netherlands on the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement and the forthcoming referendum in the UK.


"Yes, the summit is really postponed, but it is not related to the reforms. The thing is that, because of the referenda, it is not possible to ensure concrete results of the summit. It was therefore decided to postpone the event," a source in the European diplomatic circles has told an UNIAN correspondent in Brussels.

According to the source, the summit could take place in September.
